Emergency Home Assistance
by Alix Carman | 1 min read May 7th, 2019
Your insurance company might not be the first to come to mind when a pipe has burst or a window is broken. In fact, research from Allianz, conducted by Red C Research in October 2018, shows that 48% of those who experienced an emergency called a tradesperson first (for example a plumber or electrician), while only 14% called their home insurer first. The research, commissioned by Allianz and conducted by Red C Research amongst 1,043 adults nationwide, also found that only 2% of homeowners/renters were likely to call their home insurance provider when locked out of their home.
Allianz recently launched a new feature for Allianz home insurance customers, which assists home owners and renters in certain emergency situations.

Using Emergency Home Assistance is not a claim, so an excess does not apply and will not affect your No Claims Bonus.
